Following the Health Promotion and Entrepreneurship Project for out-of-school youth in Agoe and its surroundings- which was funded by African Jesuit Aids Network- 100 youths from the the Regional Chamber of Trades who had followed the first phase of the Theoretical training in Entrepreneurship and Income Generating Activities (IGA) underwent a psycho technique test.
After the test, the 10 best young people were awarded. The choice of these winners was made according to specific criteria ; vulnerability, innovation, creativity, and management of material goods. Among the winners were two seamstresses, four braiders, two hairdressers (girls), and two young hairdressers (boys). The 10 winners received work kits that will allow them to start relevant income-generating activities to provide support to their vulnerable families. These kits comprised sewing machines for seamstresses, ladies and men’s hairstyling accessories for hairdressers, and mirrors and other accessories for the braiders.
The winners thanked our donors and the Loyola Social Centers for the kits.
